This is very quick to prepare and can be used immediately after making as a glaze to drizzle on your cake or dessert. You can let it sit a few minutes and it will thicken up into a delicious and creamy frosting. Or add a little more powdered sugar to thicken it even more. I have no idea of the number of servings because it would depend on what you were using it for. So I just stuck a number in because I had to put something there. But I would probably double it for a two layer cake. But for a glaze over a cake or dessert this would probably be plenty.
This recipe goes back over 30 years and I still make today, it's the most delicious dependable never-fail moist cake that is so easy to make, just dump everything into one large bowl, there is no need to beat eggs first, if like a slight orange/chocolate flavor use orange juice or you may use half juice and water you could use all water if desired ---my family calls this the Oreo cake as it tastes similar to the chocolate wafer part of an Oreo cookie, I sometimes slice in half and spread a vanilla frosting in the middle --- please make certain to generously grease and flour your pan, I always use my recipe#78579 for this --- this is one cake you will make over and over again and it's perfect to take to a potluck! --- for glaze see my recipe#315210
I saw this recipe recently in Family Circle. My son loves Oreos and anything Oreos so I think this will be his birthday cake! Can't wait to try it. Fresh whipped cream makes this homemade cake extra special.
What do you do when you need a holiday dessert and you need it fast? You whip up a moist delicious cake! This is wounderful and you're guests are sure to love this. You can serve ala mode with a dallop of whipped cream.
A delightful discovery I made in my Company's Coming 'Lunches' cookbook. The original recipe includes a lemon sauce, but we prefer brown sugar sauce with a generous dollop of whipped cream rather. Or a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Mmm, and the smell...
**Update Aug '09: Forget brown sugar sauce! Make a double recipe as a sheet cake (bake for only 20 minutes @ 325) with a double recipe of Recipe#127144! I don't know why I haven't updated this sooner -- I've been making it this way for at least the last 2 years already!!
This cake is from a wonderful pastry chef, Mary Bergin. It's very simple, and it's simply the finest chocolate cake anywhere. When I make chocolate cake, this is the recipe I use. I may vary the accompaniments, but the cake is the same.
My mom passed this recipe along to me. It is easy to make and has been a big hit at home and at the office. I get frequent requests for the recipe. It is very moist and delicious and makes a good breakfast cake as well as a dessert. Increase nuts by another 1/3 cup if you like nuts!
